Yes! I know, and I miss it. I have a subscription to my local newspaper because I’ve seen all four employees out and about at events and activities. Not much ever happens here and the paper only comes out once a week, and is three pages thick, and is mostly made up of high school sports and local whatever (for weeks it was Mollie Tibet, and now it will be Austin Blythe- born, raised and lives here in Williamsburg played in the Superbowl last night) at least I know my subscription money is supporting active journalism, reporting and print costs (the paper is nowhere online).
